SEKTARISM - First Demo Re-Released On Vinyl, Available For Streaming In Full

French mysterious ritualistic drone/funeral doom metal band Sektarism released for the first time on vinyl their in 2011 on tape released just in 99 copies demo named Hosanna Sathana. The demo is now also limited to 296 handnumbered vinyl copies, released through Zanjeer Zani Productions/Necrocosm Productions. Hosanna Sathana contains one track of ritualistic doom madness with a playing time of 24 minutes. You can give it a listen in the player below.
A cavernous prayer laid in darkness by a strangled voice, this is what Sektarism has been for the last 12 years. Formed in 2005 by eminent members of the Apostles Of Ignominy brotherhood, the drone/funeral doom congregation has since spawned its incantations over the French and international underground.
After three demo EP's in a span of three years, Sektarism gave birth to its first album Le Son des Stigmates in 2012 under the banner of Zanjeer Zani, which received an excellent following. The assembly has since produced two split albums, including a notorious split LP, Mort Divine, with french black metal cult Darvulia on Nuclear War Now!. The last release so far, Les Voûtes, is a live album coming in a limited hand-made packaging to celebrate a ceremony set in Paris in 2015 with members of the french experimental musical scene.
Sektarism has gained an infamous reputation for their public appearances. Their fully ritualized approch of the act of playing live makes them different and unique. Each ceremony is not a gig but a celebration in the name of the Hidden Absolute, a codified yet improvised praise to the Lord. The communion with the audience can be total as the assembly sets everything in place to summon the bleakest trance possible. Everyone may be involved in the ritual, making it a radical experience in the age of sterile and harmless entertainment that so-called extreme metal has become. Link
